Join us at Ruth's Table for a fun workshop called Rubber Stamp Mania
We will make our own rubber stamps using a variety of techniques. Also
on hand will be several huge collections of rubber stamps to use throughout
the workshop. Register at ruthstable.org and have some fun!
Use your new rubber stamps for postcards, greeting cards, mail art and collage and tags.
Here is a card I made using a readymade rubber stamp I found at scrap-sf.org many years ago. It is a mason jar. I "filled" it with my newly made rubber stamp using a piece of a flip flop. I used a heat gun and heated the flip flop for approximately 15 seconds and the pushed the warm foam into the keys, buttons and paper clips making an impression. It the impression it not deep enough simply reheat the foam and start again. Using a regular ink pad ink the foam stamp and stamp it inside the jar. I was amazed how realistic it looked. It has has a look of a film negative to me.
